Scripps College ranks 25th among top U.S. liberal arts colleges, according to U.S. News & World Report

Scripps moved up two places to 25th out of more than 260 schools, according to the annual “America’s Best Colleges” report issued for 2010 by U.S. News and World Report. In less than 10 years, Scripps has successfully become one of the top 25 colleges (and one of only five women’s colleges in the top quartile), a remarkable accomplishment for a liberal arts institution that was ranked 37th in 2000.

The report also highlights Scripps’ significant achievements in selectivity, financial resources, faculty resources, and alumnae giving.

The Princeton Review also features Scripps in The Best 371 Colleges, 2010 edition. Scripps earned an academic rating of 98 (out of 100), 99 for selectivity, 98 for financial aid, and 94 for quality of life. In addition, Scripps earned #4 rankings for “Most Beautiful Campus” and “Dorms Like Palaces.” An unnamed student, quoted in the Review, says, “Scripps is a place where women are challenged to stretch themselves academically, have a strong voice, pursue their passions (whatever they may be), and love every minute of it.”
